Abstract

One of the most difficult challenges in CB protective systems is the closure because this area must be opened and closed and handled in difficult environments. Current CB protective systems are typically made from flexible base materials which requires the closure to be flexible. Current closures typically use zippers, hook and loop, or track closures. These standard closures limit the usefulness of the CB protective system because these closures do not seal well, especially at high pressures and are difficult to use in the field. A new closure system is proposed that is flexible, seals at high pressure, is CB resistant, reusable, cost effective, and can be decontaminated using standard techniques.
